Must-See Music Pick! From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
It's not always a shortcoming, wearing influences on your sleeve. Especially when they're Byrne or Bowie. As the frontman of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Alec Ounsworth has had the pleasure of playing in front of both of his idols (when folks cried 'rip-off', the legends came to see for themselves). Ounsworth has proven to be the real McCoy, creating some of the most infectious and genuine indie rock of the decade. His first solo effort spills over with the same horn-driven blasts of pop cacophony that made him someone to watch. Same story with Evanston's folk poster-child Ezra (Dylan, ahem) Furman, save for the celebrity audience members and solo split off. (Gavin Paul)
